It’s stalemate in my house at the minute. No one wants to admit defeat to the seasons and cough up the money to turn the heating on. We’re putting up one final stand against the cold, armed with this warming track from San Diego's Dirty Gold. In a saturated Afro-Beat genre (I’m

sure we’ve all heard enough Vampire Weekend), this band still makes an impact. This is especially true on California Sunrise, which bursts with fun, tropical riffs and deliciously honeyed vocals. If you enjoy this one, check out the rest of their lastest EP, ROAR, released last April.
